The only thing holding up an album is Axl.

Literally everyone else in the band has released a lot of albums. Slash released one album after another, Duff released a solo album and Loaded albums. Even Fortus released music with another band.

Wasn't Dizzy releasing an album too? (edit: he did, in 2018... I'll give it a listen)

But yeah... the only one who is not releasing new music is Axl.

The rest of the band would just release a straight up rock record within a year. But then Axl would think it's not good enough and start tinkering with it. And then he would bring in other people again... and then nothing will happen for years and everyone would leave the band.

It's Axl. He is the problem, not the solution.

They should get another vocalist and call it VR2 or something :lol:

I would be down for some VR 2.

Same here. My opinion, the first time i saw VR in 05 in oz that show was better than when i saw guns in 2017. The  energy  was completely different, the VR show was very raucous . Plus i do still play contraband. Scott was the right frontman for that band.

They could've been a solid group with more awesome records after Libertad. Too bad Scott couldn't escape his demons.

The part about his new perception of axl, vr being about touring and the reunion part was pretty interesting to read.

Scott Weiland - as great a musician as he was - was also a lot of trouble when you want a stable band :)

The guy never overcame his addictions and trouble followed him everywhere he went.

I really like reading his interview (the one Sydney Fan posted). It feels honest to me and I love how he says he understood Axl better after a while... "With this band everything is about touring" no shit :lol:

There may be a few like me who didn't and doesn't know this, but how close was gnr from reuniting in 06? Any details on that? 

I think Weiland (or someone with comparable credibility) also suggested that there was the possibility of a reunion of some kind for Donnington '06. The Greatest Hits thing makes less sense as that came out in March 2004.....then again Bucket left in March 2004 leading to the Rio/Lisboa show being cancelled so maybe some feelers were extended towards Slash?

I can't remember any more details if there were any but it does seem kinda implausible to me unless it was really a case of managers and promoters talking big money and deals with Axl knowing nothing about it as he claimed he had no idea of the 2001 tour that was booked.

Interesting he gets on twitter and tweets the same day Duff’s interview talking about him drops. 

(It’s a joke, lol).

Would be cool if Axl appeared on VR2 as a studio vocalist with no live dates...

Weird flex I know but...

Not if he sings Slither.... why he goes to the higher harmony in that songs for the chorus is beyond me

Was waiting for something stupid like adding 'fn' to sound "cool" for a christmas celebration to be posted.
